Thank you Olga, I should have known to check your site first! So just one question for a little more detail if you don't mind: We leave California in less than a week now, so no time to order now (should have included it when I ordered my Swiss Half Fare passes). The website says I can buy it at the border for about US$41. So when I drive into Switzerland from Chamonix-Mt. Blanc (France Rt. D1506 to Swiss Route 203) en route to Martigny, will there be a border station where I have to stop, show passport, etc - and have the possibility to buy the vignette there? According to the map of motorways where it will be needed, I will need it if I take Rt. 9 on from Martigny to Visp (heading to Tasch/Zermatt). But on my map of Switzerland I was planning to drive on E62, which looks like a freeway (or multi-lane expressway) and doesn't require the vignette. Is that a toll road? Anyway, I will need it for the routes I plan to drive from Luzern to Innsbruck.
Thank you for your advice,
